What is the exact location of the place referred to by the Texas
histories, as Mound Prairie?
In the Quarterly of October there is a query as to where General
]ouston was from April, 1833, to October, 1835. My father moved
to Texas with his family in November, 1833. I often heard my
mother relate the following incident: As we were traveling be-
tween San Augustine and Nacogdoches one morning a gentleman
came by riding a fine horse and wearing a broad brimmed hat,
which he touched politely as he passed the ladies. Late in the
evening the same man was met returning, and the same gentle-
manly deference shown by him. Very soon after, our party stopped
in front of a wayside store where several men were collected, and
mother asked one of them if he knew who that gentleman was
whom they had just met. "That," said he, "is Governor Iouston,
and he says that there is going to be a war in Texas before long,
and he means to figure in it." This was about the end of No-
vember, 1833.
